The Case

Family proceedings Orders in family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed a father's appeal against a child arrangements order made in favour of the mother in respect of their child. The findings and conclusions made by the judge had been open to her on the totality of the evidence before her and it had been entirely within her discretion to have made the decision she had, namely, that the child should live with his mother and should spend time with his father. In no sense could that exercise of judicial discretion be said to have been flawed, erroneous or wrong.
